My company has 1 specific application out of 100+ (provided by a 3rd party vendor, not built internally) that is causing us to maintain IE6 as the corporate standard.

And since you can't have both IE6 and IE8 installed at the same time on the same machine without jumping through hoops (and apparently it's too difficult a learning curve for IT to support Firefox for some 99% of the apps while relegating IE6 only for use with this one application in question), we're stuck with IE6 as a corporate standard.

Which also means we can't get off XP easily either. Bleah all around.


Ya ever wonder if Slashdot had been a Facebook app, whether anyone would have used it?

Wazza matter? They don't know how to use Google maps to pinpoint the closest Dunkin' Donuts and just start looking for cop there like everyone here in NJ does?


Yeah, I know it's a cliche. Actually, our local cops are at the diner, not the donut shop. But diners are a regional thing. Donut shops are pretty much worldwide.

Yeah... my folks once travelled 800 miles in a blizzard with the phone off "because it was only in case we needed to reach someone in an emergency". I then asked them, "But what if I was the one with the emergency and needed to reach *you*?".

Phone's been on ever since when they take a roadtrip. All in the perspective, I guess.
